A very rare and desirable transitional maker mark! Here we have a Transitional Model 1933 NSKK Dagger (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps Dienstdolch) by Tiger of Solingen - RZM M7/68. The blade on this one is has age nd stain. The dark and crisp acid etched "Alles für Deutschland" motto and double "Tiger Solingen"/"RZM M7/68" maker mark are beautifully executed!. Crossgrain wremains. The tip comes to a perfect point. The blade rates an easy Exc+. It has spotting and the common surface scratches / runner marks throughout. The steel based, black enamel painted scabbard body looks great! It shows age spidering throughout yet it continues to remain completely dent free and retains 98% paint coverage! The steel based, nickel-silver plated scabbard fittings are in good condition, retaining 97%+ plating coverage. The ball retains a perfectly round shape and all three screws remain tightly secured! Yes, this is missing the screw beside the scabbard ring, there is no hole there for it! we do see this sometimes. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect and closes smoothly. The crossguards are zinc based and nickel-silver plated. There is wear and plating loss as shown. The top guard has the odd scratch. The brown hardwood grip looks excellent! The odd pressure mark and a flake to the lower reverse. The solid nickel eagle is beautifully detailed with a nice fit. The SA roundel is retains 99%+ of its enamel and has a perfect fit! Always nice to see the rarer transitional examples!
